They were clearly still wiping their eyes and were quite understandably emotional but it was so nice to see them all together and less formal that they were before the service.
Were Charles and Harry together at any point?

Ultimately, I hope that people understand that the BRF is still just a family...they love like we do, fight like we do and feel loss like we do.

I respect his wish, but I found it strange that there wasn't one. In my opinion, it helps the family to grieve when they hear a eulogy.

Probably a family lunch or dinner?

It was a deeply moving service from the very first notes of the bands playing 'I vow to thee my country' to the last notes of the bagpipes fading away. Military precision, poignant choral pieces, softly spoken words and our grieving Queen bowed beneath her hat. RIP

My interpretation -as it was played during the lowering of the coffin into the royal vault- is that it symbolizes him 'leaving earth' and his 'entrance into heaven'.

All in all, a very well-executed ceremonial royal funeral; not particularly personal - but it represented the Duke.

What a moving tribute! The music was absolutely glorious, poignant, and perfectly selected by The Duke of Edinburgh. May he Rest In Peace, and I pray that The Queen and the Royal Family found comfort in the beautiful service.

The Minutes Silence at 3pm and Gun Salutes to mark the Funeral of the Duke.



The arrival of the late duke's Hearse And Carriage at Windsor.

The coffin was lowered into the Royal Vault during the service.
However it's likely that this is just a temporary arrangement - it's believed that both he and The Queen will eventually be interred in the King George VI Memorial Chapel - with King George VI, his wife Queen Elizabeth, and the ashes of Princess Margaret.

I didnít see them walking together but maybe they were after cameras cut away. Charles and Camilla walked together, the Yorks all seemed to be grouping together. Peter and David were together. William, Harry, and Kate were together at one point but then at another William and Harry were together while Kate was with Sophie and Louise.

I know I am probably in the minority, but I don't really like them...at least not the American style ones that sometimes border on inappropriate. I prefer to keep eulogies and homilies for the wake or the reception.

So many moving moments before and during the service on this historic day. The ponies and Prince Philipís carriage standing in the quad, the Last Post and Reveille, the Queen making her entrance alone, with the Dean. All memorable.

Yes it sounds as if the coffin will rest in the Royal vault until after The Queen passes at which point it will join hers in the George VI Memorial Chapel. I guess that will be a lovely moment for the family seeing the Queen reunited with "her strength and stay".

A lovely service. I was very happy choosing to watch the service on BBC, despite several Scandinavian channels also sending it. With the military participation, and music before the procession, it was very moving. Especially when the carriage came in.

I found it appropriate also, that despite the Viscount Severn being the youngest grandson and it would have been lovely to have all four grandsons in the procession, the royal family learned from Harry's trauma after walking after his mother's coffin, and he arrived with his mother and sister instead.

I appreciated the family walk and chat up to the castle afterwards, but it felt slightly odd as the cars passed by them.

Thank you! My hope is that, on a day when Charles buried his dear papa, that he and his son have some moments together...

When the Garter King of Arms proclaimed Prince Philip's titles and styles, I wonder why his Commonwealth orders (e.g. Knight of the Order of Australia, Companion of the Order of Canada, etc.) were not mentioned.


I understand foreign orders are not listed, but I don't think national Commonwealth orders should count as "foreign" since the Queen is the Sovereign of those orders and they have been established by Letters Patent under the Royal Sign Manual and the Great Seal of the respective realm.


I didn't see it clearly, but, in addition to the insignia of the Orders of the Garter, Thistle and of the British Empire, the Order of Merit and the Royal Victorian Order, I believe the Duke's Commonwealth orders were also laid on the altar.

I saw Beatrice's husband Edoardo gently put his right arm around her, caress her back and embrace her as they were exiting with the family. He always appears so loving and solicitous of Beatrice.

Unfortunately, I overslept and missed some of the service. I pray there will be a recast of it later.
I think it will also be available on The Royal Family channel on YouTube, so if you've missed a part, you'll still be able to watch it there.

One point I enjoyed very much is the BBC commentators being able to remain silent when it was needed. Had I watched the service on my national channels, there would have been many comments even when silence would have been the most appropriate attitude. It was a very dignified broadcast.

I agree with you - I donít like them either. Sometimes they strike the right note, sometimes they really donít. I donít know about in the CofE but in the American Episcopal Church (we are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion of which the Archbishop of Canterbury is head), we rarely have them. The clergy always do them and depending on if/how well the clergy knew the person who died... it makes a huge difference obviously.

Huw Edwards recalled once how during the funeral of Pope John Paul II one of his guests, a priest, told him to be quiet and just listen. Clearly he does the same still.
